Pride & Confidence
So KNIGHTS- at any game, be it football, basketball, baseball- any sport really, as you walk on or off the field hold your head high with pride and confidence, win or loose always take the high road...when the game is done, take a good hard look at your opponents face and meet their eyes and smile. What just happened is done...because tomorrow we start onto the next week, and our next game. But sometime in your future that guy that just beat you, could be your teammate some place else or at the very least you will see him again. Treat others how you want to be treated. Yes it's tough to loose but it's harder to disgrace yourself with the inability to shake your opponents hand after a game ...good sportsmanship is a fundamental, you learned it a long time ago and it can never be forgotten, as an athlete it's part of your own self worth, it's money in your bank. Win or loose the smile should be the same. Smiles are hard to read, but a frown says someone kicked your butt tonight. Smile with pride and confidence to start and finish...Tonight was a great game we played hard, we were ahead but there were many penalties and a lot of personal fouls, but there were some outstanding plays on both sides of the ball. Every Knight whether you were on the turf, sidelines or in the stands should feel the pride and confidence as we grow and build our colony of Knight's we are better than a blank stare, we are proud of what we have gained and we are coming back to fight again. Win or loose let's make sure we are good to ourselves and our opponents...take the high road!
